MOSCOW, August 12 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow election commission did not comment on the possible criminal case launch against Moscow’s mayoral candidate Alexei Navalny upon accusations of foreign financing of his election campaign.
“As yet, I have not seen the case and cannot give any comments,” the election commission’s Chairman Valentin Gorbunov said on Monday.
“The Prosecutor General’s Office checks into an application from leader of the LDPR faction at the State Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky about violations of the current legislation during the election campaign of a Moscow mayoral candidate Alexei Navalny,” Prosecutor General’s Office said earlier on Monday. “At the current stage of the inspection, some of reasons Zhirinovsky has quoted have proved to be true.”
“During the inspection, we have confirmed the information about foreign financing of Alexei Navalny’s election campaign,” the source said. “We have found out that via the Yandex Money electronic payment system over 300 foreign companies and individuals, as well as anonymous payers from 46 countries, including the US, Finland, the UK, Switzerland, Canada, from 347 IP addresses, transferred to Alexei Navalny’s electronic purses and to those of his election headquarters’ representatives Lyaskin, Yankauskas and Ashurov, the money for the election campaign of Moscow’s mayoral candidate Navalny.”
